about this? what's their side of the story? >> yeah, pushing back, jay carney just sent this note on allegations of white house pressure being placed on insurance executives. he writes that accusation is preposterous and inaccurate. plus it ignores the fact that every day insurance companies are talking about the rollout. in large part because they are trying to reach millions of new customers who now will have new affordable insurance through the marketplaces. that's from jay carney. he also reiterated that he believes bob la skew zi has been against obama care for a long time. and a longtime opponent. >> you acknowledge, he has been critical of obama care for a long time. so viewers should keep that in mind, as well as the white house saying they totally don't buy this? >> absolutely right. again, sources of mine. chris frates' sources saying that. >> drew, thank you for that clarification. >>> promises that president obama made repeatedly, listen. >> if you like your health care plan. you'll be able to keep your health care plan. >> you can keep it. keep your plan. you'll be ab
% of the people who were in the insurance market right now. and when i asked jay carney, does the president regret making these comments, he said, no, the president was not misleading the public and that the people who are receiving these letters in the mail right now saying that their plans are being changed or discontinued, that those people are being affected or impacted by the insurance companies, not obama care. here is what jay carney had to say. >> did the president mislead the american people when he made that comment repeatedly? >> no. the president was clear about a basic fact. if had you insurance you liked on an individual market and you wanted to keep that insurance through 2010, 2013, in perpetuity if you wanted to, you could. you were grandfathered in. what no -- health care reform could envision or could responsibly stipulate is that any plan that might come along in the next few years would be grandfathered in because that would undermine the basic premise of providing the minimum benefits for the american people. again, in all of these cases, what is absolutely true is that if yo
to determine how to carry those out. white house spokesman jay carney warned that critics of nsa surveillance should be careful what they wish for. >> we're one attack away from assessments about what went wrong in our intelligence capabilities and collections. the work that's being done here saves lives. >> reporter: whether listening in on the leaders of close allies such as german chancellor merkel saves lives, the white house didn't have an answer. though it confirmed it is reassessing such high level surveillance as part of its overall intelligence review. on the hill today, european lawmakers went head-to-head with congressional leaders on nsa spying. the head of the delegation told me their discussion was frank. >> you had a very stern message to deliver. >> i think we had a very robust and strong message when we came to congress today. this bill which has come through the allegations is something that's [ inaudible ]. they feel very uneasy. they don't know why it's happening, why our strongest ally is doing it. >> reporter: today, they had more to talk about regarding spain, where the
there you see the white house press secretary jay carney strongly defending the nsa surveilance program. if you read between the lines, he wasn't going to confirm the u.s. has been spying on cellphones of angela merkel, the chancellor of germany or other allied leaders but did repeatedly say and this is a relatively new line, there's a whole new technology of trying to prevent terrorism and the u.s. has a responsibility to protect the american people and he kept saying america's allies. the bottom line is -- it's at least in part designed to help them because the u.s. presumably has a better intelligence capability and maybe they can find out about some sort of loom terrorist plot before the respective governments can. he kept talking about the new technology that is available right now. the u.s. needs to protect the american people and america's allies. he kept saying america's allies over and over again. on the other big subject of the day, the latest problems involving the obama care website. he did read that statement that the department of health and human services just released a
. over the past couple of days, some of the people involved david axelrod, jay carney suggested that was never a consideration. was this a big deal or not a big deal? >> a big deal in the following sense. have you a presidency at the low point, after the last round of budget negotiations in 2011. the president's poll numbers are down. he's seen as weak. bill dal y, white house chief of staff at the time, look, we have to consider, as he said the other day, we have to consider every option. one thing to look at, do the due diligence, lets test it, lets see how obama clinton does compared to obama/biden. now, when the results came back it showed it didn't help that much and didn't go forward. but it is sort of extraordinary. if you think about the white house chief of staff, the top advisers. it was a very small group that knew about this david plouffe, axelrod, the president's pollster. for that group of people to say, look, we need to take a look at this, even though they knew it was a long shot and there would be a downside. it was certainly part of the history of this administ
house press secretary, jay carney was asked during his daily briefing. here's what he had to say. take a listen. >> the president has been briefed on the incident at los angeles international airport. by alyssa mass extra monaco, chief of staff, and he will be updated. at this point the lead is the lapd, but we're obviously at the federal level in touch with law enforcement officials on the ground, and will -- the president will be updated as the afternoon progresses. >> now, at this point in time, there appears there are no plans for the president to speak about this. president obama currently meeting with iraq's prime minister, norelle maliki, this was supposed to be the president's health care website, but, of course, renewed discussion about the issue of guns and gun violence as this white house continues to monitor the situation at l.a.x. back to you. >> all right, kristen, thank you very much. the shooting at l.a.x. is, of course, affecting air travel everywhere else. that is, perhaps, the least of the issues with one person dead and several injured. but that is something that a
're waiting for today's white house briefing to get under way. the press secretary jay carney likely to face more questions about obama care and the political tell-all book "double rap."
strongly in these daily briefings. jay carney has reporters challenging things that we're reporting that of course is out there. the president went on the road this week to try to defend it. it's been a very sharp defense. >> and they're getting help from people like oracle. >> they brought in these tech experts. yesterday they said there was somebody from google coming in to try to turn this thing around. again, the problem is the int introduction for most americans to the affordable care act has not been a good one. they have to change if this is going to work. >> jan, as you pointed out, the president promised if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. that's not true for those who get individual coverage. there's small portions but 3 million -- >> we think the number is going to be more like 10 million or 15 million. >> what about the promise that president obama says if you like your dock, to you can keep your doctor. >> it's not just a broken website. people are finding out about the affordable health care for the first time. they said, i thought you could keep y
, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who
secretary jay carney. he said, kate, this is conflating disparate issues. >> brianna, thank you so much for that update. let's stay at the white house. the white house is responding to deadline pressure clarifying that americans will have until march 31st to sign up for obama care. this as the president's advisers are fighting back against another claim and denying that millions of people would lose coverage because of obama care. chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta is joining us from atlanta. for more on this. a lot of confusion it seems like was created yesterday, sanjay. what are you hearing about the reports that millions of americans could be losing their existing coverage because that was a claim you heard over and over again from the president when he was campaigning for it. if you like your doctors and insurance plan, you can keep it. >> well, here's the bottom line. you have about 15 million people who buy insurance on their own right now, meaning they're not getting it through their employer. it's that population of people we're talking about specifically. what has ha
